Green Planet Coffeeshop is located on Spuistraat (translates as Lock Street), not far from the famous Amsterdam city landmarks of the Royal Palace and De Nieuwe Kerk (The New Church). This is a fairly unassuming shop from the outside. It is located on the basement of its building, and only has has a couple of small windows out front. The immediate area also tends to see more traffic passing through than hanging around. Though its building's brick facade is quite beautiful, it can still be easy to miss Green Planet.
This is far from the largest coffeeshop in Amsterdam. The room inside Green Planet is small. Further, its two small windows don't let in a whole lot of natural light. That would not be to say this is an unappealing coffeeshop, however. To the contrary, the interior is quite updated and contemporary. Seating is provided in the form of small table/stool sets and full sized benches. It is quite an interesting mix, actually. There is a modern gray mica counter where you order your cannabis products and extras, and a lot of cool neon accent lighting around. It feels like a hip nightclub; the kind of place that features black (UV) lights or a bubble machine. Only, there isn't much room to pack the people in here. This shop is much more personal and private.
The most notable feature of Green Planet is probably the outdoor seating. On warm sunny days, the management places out table and chair sets. Spuistraat has a wide sidewalk, so there is plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy some "al fresco" coffeeshopping.
Green Planet has a cannabis menu that is moderate in size. On the weed side, you should find a lot of tradition favorites; though they are likely to also stock a few contemporary strains. Hashish is mainly in the form of imports from Morocco. Though this shop is in the city center, pricing tends to be a touch more reasonable here than in some of the more high-profile shops. They also serve some basic drinks and snacks here.
The best hash in town
